Impressions of the Unimog anniversary weekend in Gaggenau.
From the production plant in Wörth am Rhein via Karlsruhe, the 75 Unimog convoy made its way to Gaggenau. The occasion for this impressive spectacle was the 75th anniversary of the legendary vehicle. On the first weekend in September, the success story of the Unimog, which has already lasted for three quarters of a century, was extensively celebrated. And what better location for such an anniversary than the long-standing home of the universal motor vehicle?
Two is better than one.
The first Unimog produced by Daimler rolled off the production line in 1951 at the Gaggenau plant, where today the Unimog-Museum brings the fascination of the legend to life. But since prototypes were already being built in Schwäbisch Gmünd in 1946, a big double anniversary was on the agenda in 2021: 75 years of the Unimog, 70 of them with the star on the bonnet.
